past and as you know this is the home state of paul ryan. precious time to be expending on a traditional blue state at the end. the president is cross crossing the nation going is from ohio to virginia to florida to colorado back and forth across the battleground states in the final hours. and part of the message is countering the message you hear from romney. governor romney says he will bring big change, the president arguing he is the only one who can carry that banner. listen to this. >> you may not agree with every decision i've made. sometimes you may have been frustrated by the pace of change. but, you know where i stand. you know what i believe. you know i mean what i say and i say what i mean. >> and wolf, part of his argument there as well as he's an honest person that voters can trust. something interesting i'll tell you, you might be able to tell over my shoulder, a comparatively small crowd here. they've been mixing it up. the one in wisconsin 20,000 people, according to law enforcement officials there. this one significantly smaller. where ever i've been, they a

least one more time. paul ryan is here today. that says it all. both campaigns know that this is a very competitive state to the end. the suburbs are the key areas. make this point before i throw it back to you, 1.3 million people have already voted in the state of colorado. i talked to is the secretary of state today, he says that's probably about half of the electorate and says you can still vote until tomorrow. more than 50% of the votes will be cast before election day and they're already starting to count them. we were watching that process in downtown denver. >> are we getting any indication on how the independent voters are moving right now? >> reporter: it's a critical question because this state is roughly evenly divided between democrats, republicans, independents or unaffiliated voters. if you look at our poll, our poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if

. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan. and we need them right now. right now i'm much more concerned about preventing any other loss of life, getting people to safe places. then we'll worry about the election. the election will take care of itself. i've spoke to the president three times yesterday. he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state. not once did he bring up the election. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics. and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a darn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> yeah. he's a strong, strong guy. only an hour ago after his tour with the president he's got a great working relationship with the president. they'
